Hammers and Gerrard

steven-gerrard-liverpool_3001748Karren Brady’s half suggestion a few weeks ago that Steven Gerrard could be an option for West Ham is a non starter.

The vice chairman made no secret of her admiration for the Liverpool hero who has announced he intends moving on this summer and hinted the Irons may make a move.

But despite making a tentative inquiry the club will not be pursuing any interest they may have had in the former England captain.

A Hammers source revealed: “We discovered he wanted between £100k – £150 a week and we are looking for faster and younger players anyway.”

  1. We don’t need another midfielder who has passed his prime,he has struggled because unlike Lampard it’s harder to play when you don’t have class players around you,even Nolan would look good playing with Ya Ya,Silva,Aguerro ect ect,not Henderson,Lucas ect ect,He is doing the right thing for himself and the club he loves it’s a pity others at our club don’t make the same call.

  2. Gerrard is 36 and his contract is running out whereas said other person is 32 and has a £50k pw contract for another 18 months bubs. Go figure.

  3. What a load of rubbish …. another 5 minutes of precious time wasted !!

  4. Who do you think I was talking about WhuG ?and we all know that contracts can be ripped up buy both parties,I would rather draw matches with young players like Poyet gaining experience then wait for people to pass land marks like scoring 100 goals.

  5. Nolan of course Bubs.

    Contracts can be torn up but like or loathe the skipper of course he is going to see out his contract. He is on £50k pw why would he tear up his contract? When it expires end of next season he will be a free agent. He will then still be 2 years younger than Gerrard and can go stateside or whatever.

    My point isn’t whether I want him to play or not it’s why would he do what Gerard is doing now?
